Scavenger Hunt – April 2018

It was a surprise waking to a very cold and misty morning Saturday for our Photo Scavenger Hunt, especially after 87 degrees on Friday. But 10 of us showed up in Grapevine ready to shoot.

We had a list of almost 50 items to look for and about two hours time to get our photographs. With it being bitterly cold and windy, most of us took off for the Main St. Bread Company for coffee before really getting started.

Thirty minutes later, we all headed out in our own directions; catching up with one or two others when popping into an open store to get warm and find items on our list.

We asked strangers to kiss, hold hands, make funny faces, jump in the air, etc. The strangers (now our new friends) had as much fun helping us with our list as we had photographing them.

We met at Willhoite’s for lunch and provided some of our best or most fun images to be put on the computer. After lunch, we drove to the Grapevine Community Center where we showed our images on a large TV screen. We ooh’d, aah’d, and laughed at some of
the images and with each other.

This was such a fun outing for the club.
